Children's Bible Talk

The Great Commission: "Disciples, Recycles?"

(You will need two people or two puppets for this children's Bible talk. Person 1 carries a bag with a Bible in it. Person 2 carries a large bag full of empty aluminum cans and glass bottles.)

Person 1: Hello kids, today we're talking about being disciples for Jesus.

Person 2: (comes running in out of breath and carrying a large bag of cans and bottles) 
Did you say disciples? I thought we were talking about recycles! Look what I brought! (Proudly dumps bag of cans and bottles onto the floor.)

Person 1: Recycles? Why would we talk about recycling in church? 

Person 2: Aren't we supposed to keep God's planet clean?

Person 1: Yes, good point, but that's not our subject today. Today, we're talking about what it means to be a disciple of Jesus! The word disciple comes from the word "discipline." 

Person 2: I don't like discipline!

SHINE Jesus' Light Craft

Craft to Teach Let Your Light Shine for Jesus Matthew 5:16

Children make the Paper Lantern craft to learn what Jesus said about himself, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life" John 8:12.

When Jesus taught the Sermon on the Mount, he said to his followers, "You are the light of the world--like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden" Matthew 5:14.

Use this craft in Sunday school, Bible clubs, or as part of your vacation Bible school program. It is also a great add-on craft to Stellar VBS! Download the craft today!
